September Buddies

So apparently there are quite a few of us cycling in September, so let's start a September Buddies group.   I know quite a few of us introduced ourselves under 'who else is doing IVF in Sept', so why doesn't everyone check in here and we can start a progress chart?


I am excited to be starting again. I'm currently on 1st week of BCP's, one more week to go.  I go in for my baseline on Sept 5th, and take my first Lupron shot that day, if all is well.


Let's have a great September, ladies, with lots of BFP's!  :)

Thanks Amanda - that's my daughter's name so my favorite name!!

I'm excited to have a place to share info and get help from! I was a part of a Resolve fertility group but 2 out of 6 of us are preggo now (the goal and wonderful but they are in a diff place now). 2 have kinda dropped out of the group. So it is just myself and one other lady who really is at the point where she is getting okay w/being childless. I'm not! I would work 3 jobs, cut off all my toes, hang upside down for 4 hours, whatever anybody told me to give my husband a child and to experience childbirth.

I love my (adopted) daughter too much to not want more! But this time I want to have a baby from the first day! I missed too much because we were not able to bring my Amanda home until she was 15 mos.

XXOO - happy stimulating!

So about 9-10 ladies doing IVF this month?

Chris, Mandy, Carrie, Amarlow, Amanda, Ashley, Shannon, Lisa Marie and Jill? Did I get everybody so far?? Nice to meet you-all!!

I'm on day 4 of stims - of course some of my follicles are getting too big and Dr. wasn't happy at appointment today. Makes me so anxious when they aren't positive. Last 2 cycles I got about 8 eggs of which about 6 fertilized - I was hoping for more this time - he said not going to happen. So of course I'm in tears driving out of the parking lot.

But this cycle I'm pushing my way and got RE to agree to letting me take Heparin. My RE in Phx (where I used to live) said I have a problem w/my blood and need better blood flow and that it could be affecting both implantation and keep preg - of course I've never been pg so I wouldn't know that part. But anyway I really have wanted to included Heparin in cycle - went to see hematologist and he agreed that I have problem w/clotting and would put me on once preggo - but now finally got him to agree and call in script for me. Yeah! So I feel like the odds are stacked in my favor this time!

Keep us all updated ladies so we can all support each other through this roller coaster ride of emotions!

Hi Rachel,

Tomorrow is my day 4 of stims for me, then I see the doc on Wed. So, do you know what size the follies are that are too big? Did they change up your dosages? As long as you're not cancelled, there is still hope for this cycle right?

That's great about the Heparin. I hope that it helps!

Keep us posted.
